PEER PRESSURE IN FASHION| HOW TO HANDLE?

WORKING CORRECTLY WITH YOUR VALUES & PERSONALITIES

If we feel that something is unsuitable for us (e.g., style, trend, design method, animation...), we should not follow grudgingly because of the fear of being judged. We can spend time searching for our own "fashion identity" in the following ways:

• Read artbooks, fashion history books, and learn about subcultures.

• Understand your interests and origins.

• Take personal style as the foundation.

• Watch fashion show, reality show, documentary...

• Concretize your aesthetic taste; choose what you love in fashion

HAVING CLEARLY GOALS IN FASHION


Peer Pressure sometimes occurs when you are disoriented about the future or career path. Take the time to learn about the different professions and areas of fashion. Do we want to work in the studio and design the collection rather than be more production-oriented?; or the heat of the media and magazines? Focusing on your direction is the way to help us shine the most.


TIME TO MAKE A PERSONAL IMPRESSION: 'SLOWLY BUT SURELY'

Before the achievements achieved by others, it is easy to fall into the negative state of having to make a mark, especially in fashion design. Carrying everything with the desire to impress makes us quickly burn out and lose control. Focus on doing all the assigned tasks with a progressive attitude; when you look back, you will see that you have accumulated more experience and matured than the first day.


NETWORKING BASED ON EMPATHIZING

Opening our hearts, sharing, and learning to put ourselves in other people's shoes will help reduce the pressure of looking at their achievements. Instead of seeing someone as a "rival," we can be friends with them. Learning to empathize with friends of diverse personalities and styles is also empathizing with yourself. On the contrary, when we receive their admiration, we also feel less insecure about ourselves.

"ESCAPE PLAN" FOR YOURSELVES

Most fashion people have an introverted part. The feeling of peer pressure sometimes can't share with anyone what to do right now is to change the workspace / create or limit exposure to things that are not in the mood. Sometimes we feel more confident when we have some quiet time alone, listening and understanding ourselves. Each person will have an "escape plan" suitable for them.
